The SCALEXIO Ethernet boards provide additional Ethernet interfaces to the SCALEXIO Processing Unit, the SCALEXIO LabBox or the SCALEXIO AutoBox. Boards that offer native BroadR-Reach support and an integrated Ethernet switch are available for both platforms, and they can be configured via modules.
The DS6333-PE/-CS Automotive Ethernet Board and the DS6335-CS Ethernet Board provide five additional Ethernet ports for a SCALEXIO system. Four of these ports can be configured for automotive or standard Ethernet communication, depending on the modules used. The fifth port always provides a standard Ethernet connection and is ideal for monitoring or for cascading two switches. The boards support applications such as ECU interfacing and simulator coupling, and enable you to configure a system as a simulation node in an Ethernet SOME/IP (scalable service-oriented middleware over IP) network. The cost-effective DS6335-CS is dedicated for use cases such as simulator coupling and ECU interfacing and does not include SOME/IP support.
The DS6331-PE Ethernet Board and the DS6334-PE Ethernet Board provide four additional Ethernet ports for the SCALEXIO Processing Unit. They support applications which do not require automotive Ethernet connections or an Ethernet switch. The DS6335-CS is a cost-effective board for projects without a requirement for SOME/IP communication, such as bypassing and simulator coupling. If service-oriented communication (SOME/IP) has to be configured with the dSPACE Ethernet Configuration Package, the DS6331-PE is the right choice.
For use cases that require a higher bandwith, dSPACE provides the DS6336-PE and DS6336-CS Ethernet boards. These boards offer two ports with separate controllers. Each port can be used with the following data rates: 100 MBit/s, 1 GBit/s, 2.5 GBit/s, 5 GBit/s, and 10 GBit/s.
100Base-T1 is a 100 Mbit/s Ethernet interface developed for automotive use cases. It operates with one unshielded or shielded twisted pair of wires. 100Base-T1 is based on BroadR-Reach and has been standardized by the IEEE 802.3bw working group. The 1000Base-T1 standard is similar to 100Base-T1 but supports a data transfer of 1 Gbit/s over one twisted pair of wires.
